I added the Brightness Applet to the top panel, but when I change the brightness, nothing happens. D:I can't stand this, it's like my screen is stuck on supa-bright and it's hurting my eyes. When I load my PC up in Windows, the brightness control works just fine. But it doesn't seem to work on Ubuntu.
i use a HP Pavilion dv6-3016ax everything works perfectly and i am very happy with ubuntu! If i could get the Brightness keys to work and the microphone i'd be even better. The brightness FN keys change the slider but make no physical difference of the brightness. And the microphone just doesn't work.
I bought a Toshiba Nb205 laptop with a Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02) inside. After I first got it I installed Ubuntu onto it, and that's where the problems started. After everything was installed I noticed that my sound doesn't work. So I looked everywhere. I tried so many solutions offered on these forums including messing around with Alsamixer and nothing seemed to be working. Then one day I luckily stumbled upon this website that directed me here: [URL] So I went there and picked the Linux 2.6(X86)(DEB) from the drop down list and installed it. I rebooted my machine, and I now had sound.
However, the only problem is that I can't control the volume of the sound. When I play something, it stays at one volume and one volume only. Nothing on sound preferences will work. The only way I can raise or lower the volume is if I do it in the application that I run, like if I am playing a ..... video, I have to use their volume control to control the volume. My master volume won't work at all.
after installing trying to install veetle on my ubuntu 10.04 64 bit I always get the message at the start-up:could not update /home/user/.ICEauthority.my sound control does not work anymore (message: 'waiting for sound system to respond')using Krusader I get the message 'Cannot talk to klauncher: The name org.kde. klauncher was not provided by any .service files.I checked the owner of .ICEauthority and the permission and they are OK. Same for my /home. None of the suggestions found in the other threads worked.Veetle has been installed using the install.sh script and there is no unistall option
I've been having problems in getting my microphone input to work. Frustratingly, it works sometimes and doesn't work at other times, and I have yet to discover what causes the difference. I've been testing it with the Skype Sound Test Service.
My laptop, like most others, has a built-in microphone as well as a microphone jack (which I'm using). In kmix, there are sliders for:
What do all of these do, and how do they relate to the two microphone sources? Can I use them to select input from one source while silencing the other? Where can I read about this?
I'm running Kubuntu Koala, so I asked this question over in the Kubuntu forum, but no one there has responded. That was probably not the best place to try (for this issue, at least).
I am currently using Windows 7 but I would really like to install the new Ubuntu, what bothers me is that I tried using Ubuntu 9.04 few months ago and I had troubles changing the brightness (Toshiba L40). I have searched in the forum and it appears that there are quite some people with the same problems, of course fixes are offered but as at least some basic kernel knowledge is required I am in no position to follows the proposed steps. Since this is one of the determining factors whether to stay with Windows or go to Ubuntu I was wondering whether this problem is fixed in 10.04 or not?
P.S. I haven't tried messing with the kernel because I have only one laptop and I am afraid to lose the information on it.
I've just upgraded my web/tv setup from 9.10 to lucid and everything seems to be working apart from my infra red remote control.The remote was working fine in 9.10 and was used to control mythtv-frontend however after the upgrade the remote appears to be controlling ubuntu natively, i.e. right left up and down control what is selected on the desktop where as previously the remote was set to only work within mythtv. Whilst native support for my remote control is muchly appreciated(if that is what this is) where can I configure the controls so that it is usable again?
I am using Samsung N150 and ubuntu 10.10 is installed in it. There is problem with brightness control i.e., I cannot control my brightness by up & down keys. I made settings such as:
I Add the repository to the sources list and enable it sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voria/ppa Perform complete system update sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade it may take long time depending the internet connection than I installed packages "samsung-backlight" and "easy-slow-down-manager" sudo apt-get install samsung-backlight easy-slow-down-manager
Also I made changes in brightness setting in during the boot i.e set to user control instead of automatic. But after doing all these stuff still my laptop brightness not control by fn + up/down keys.
I got a new Sony F series laptop and struggled thru getting the video card to work, the wireless card to work, and the volume to work on 9.10. The brightness controls have stumped me though. The screen is on full bright and the brightness controls (FN+F5 & FN+F6) make the applet display change but the actual screen brightness does not change. I have also tried the brightness applet in the panel and that also has no effect on actual screen brightness.
I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Macbook Pro 6,2 and try as I might can't change the brightness of my screen whatsoever. I cant use "echo 100> /sys/devices/virtual/backlight/nvidia_backlight/brightness" because the folder does not exist. Pommed, when run using "sudo pommed -d" complains with "Failed to access brightness node: No such file or directory".
I have the mbp-nvidia-bl driver installed *only* (removed nvidia-bli because I had seen in other threads that the two conflicted). I've tried searching the forums and the web but nothing is helping me so far. Biggest roadblock for me using ubuntu is having the headache of using a much to dim screen(or currently a much too bright screen)
I have a white Macbook 7,1 and am running 11.04 beta 1. I have worked out almost everything, sound being the main thing that didn't work. The one thing I don't have working is my brightness control -- my laptop always displays at 100%. I tried installing pommed and the dkms package from the Mactel PPA, but nothing works yet. The wiki hasn't been updated to 7,1 for Maverick, let alone Natty.
I have an issue with Debian 7.8 (wheezy) on my laptop. I've had to reinstall Debian on my laptop and since then I've had issues getting brightness controls to work properly.
It's a Core i3 370M processor with Ironlake graphics, I've had this issue before with Ubuntu and I sought [URL] ..... I've tried the steps that worked for Ubuntu (thinking they'd be the same as they're both Debian based) and it hasn't worked.
What should I try to get it to work? Since I have updated my grub config (as per the Ubuntu fix), brightness doesn't work at all and my screen now tiles ever so slightly when moving the cursor from side to side. I'll revert those changes if need be or if this issue cannot be resolved.
I've tried to install the Intel graphics drivers from 01.org, however I get an issue with libglib dependencies not being satisfied ( libglib2.0-0(>=2.37.3) ) that how to resolve.
I have F15 fresh install on Samsung Q45. The brightness function key is recognized but doesn't really increase or decrease brightness. It is set to maximum.There was a workaround in F14 for same problem.
I just finished installing Slackware64 13.37 on my Sony Vaio PCG-7153L, and I'm having issues controlling the LCD brightness of the laptop. It still has the stock Slack kernel 220.127.116.11 SMP The brightness controls worked on Fedora 12-14, as well as the Ubuntu 10.04 live disc. I checked /proc/acpi/, but there's nothing in there to control brightness. I reloaded the sony_laptop kernel module, and from dmesg I get:
sony-laptop: brightness ignored, must be controlled by ACPI video driver From the Ubuntu bug [URL] and the Red Hat bug [URL] it looks like they've already dealt with this problem. However, as I said earlier, my laptop worked fine with Fedora 12-14.I know Slackware does minimal fiddling with the kernel, so I'm thinking this might be an upstream kernel bug...
My MacBookPro5,5 (also known as the June 2009 Unibody MBP) is having brightness problems. Usually, with OOTB Ubuntu, I can control the brightness flawlessly with the keyboard keys labeled F1 and F2 with no problems once I install the nvidia_bl driver. Pommed improves the experience, giving me keyboard brightness.
Since installing yesterday, the brightness control randomly stopped working. Xev reports that the brightness up and down keys return a keycode (whereas F7 - F12, the playback and volume keys do not; both sets control their respective stuff natively)... this shouldn't happen. nvidia_bl is loading properly according to dmesg; so this problem is baffling.
The Gnome brightness applet does not work, nor does auto dimming. The applet displays a helpfully-apt red circle-with-slash mark. "echo x | sudo tee -a /sys/class/backlight/nvidia_backlight/brightness" still works to change the brightness manually. I can get the Gnome brightness working by manually changing the brightness, killing gnome-power-daemon, and then restarting it via the terminal in no-daemon mode.
I have a new netbook, a Lenovo Z360 and everything except one thing works "out-of-the-box". The one thing is the brightness control. I think it's the same bug like in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/538256 But I don't get anything in dmesg, it's just not working. setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=?? don't work, too. nomodeset acpi_backlight=vendor don't work, too. I'm using Fedora 14 with KDE, 18.104.22.168-83.fc14.i686 and the intel drivers. Maybe somebody knows a workaround, usually brightness control works very well in the newer distributions. I had like 4 notebooks all with Fedora installed and brightness works, especially with the open source intel drivers I didn't expect any difficulties.
I have searched online with no success. The brightness control is working fine on my laptop. Problem is that the bars don't get rendered on screen. Instead I get like a static white line on screen everytime I press the brightness control. On boot however, I can see the correct bars. It is once I start my xsession, the bars do not show up. Here are my specs:
I bought a new computer, pretty awesome machine, AMD FX6300 with a Radeon 260X graphics. Along I bought a new Led monitor AOC with DDC/CI capability.
It is my understanding that with the DDC/CI, monitors can have their brightness controlled just like laptop screens do, but better software controlled.
This is something I have done before with nvidia graphics, the open drive had the control and the proprietary only needed a small config setting. This was done however in a dekstop iMac, the screen also LED and HDMI.
So I just freshly installed debian jessie in this setup, it seems the open source driver does a pretty good job, but still missing the brightness control and audio through HDMI doesn't work either.
I've just installed the Nvidia drivers on my Debian, however, after i do it, the laptop brightness control doesn't work anymore... When i press the keys, i see the brightness bar, however, the brightness stays at maximum. I've used the following commands to install the drivers.
In ubuntu 10.04 my X-fi Fatal1ty Titanium sound card worked for my speakers but I had to use onboard sound for the mic. When I installed 10.10 the sound card no longer works at all so I have to run the speakers through the onboard sound.
The second problem I have is that Skype will not pick up my microphone all other programs seem to be able to record from the microphone just fine but skype does not. Ive tried selecting all the different input device options from the skype settings but none of them seem to work.
EDIT: Sound doesn't work at all in wine.
EDIT2: The X-fi card no longer shows up in the sound control panel.
I tried to find the information by myself (google search, forum search, Faq, manual...) but i didn't find any clue. I installed CentOs 5.5 on a macbook model 1,1 and I have currently two issues :
The keyboard mapping is wrong (it didn't fit with the macbook keyboard, ex: the '-' is not on touch '6' for example...). Is there a way to apply macbook keyboard mapping? I didn't find how to modify the brightness of the screen. Where is this settings? It didn't appear in the video card settings that is very basic. Do I need to install a proprietary driver for my GMA on my macbook? Also, i will like to have this settings on the keyboard with the dedicated button (like for the sound that works well).
I have a sony vaio VGN-NW270F.Everything is working fine except the FN brightness keys, they are mapped to F5 and F6. If anyone knows the solution to this problem or could provide me with a way to map different keys to control the brightness of my monitor that would be great.
I ran Kubuntu 10.4 from the Live CD and from the start The screen was automatically set to be as dim as possible, but in the power manager the brightness is set to be as bright as possible. Moving around the slider doesn't do nothing, and when I click the battery icon in the tray, it shows another brightness slider that's set to dim as possible, when I move it around it has no effect and just goes back to where it was when I close the popup window. Right now I'm running from the livedisk on an IBM T42 thinkpad laptop.How do I fix this, is it a hardware issue, I've had problems with my graphics card in the past with compositing in X/Ubuntu.I've found some text files for the backlight, they're all set to 0 which I believe is the problem, however even though I'm running the File Manager as root with kdesudo and the permissions are set to read and write for the owner, who is root, I can't save any changes.
